The knowledge of Equatorial Guinea Lepidoptera and particularly of those in the Isle of Bioko is well documented (Schultze et. al. 1923; Viejo, 1984; Olano y Marcos, 1993; Spearman et. al 2000), and is completed by important works of general nature on afrotropical Lepidoptera (d’Abrera, 1997; Ackery et. al. 1995; Larsen, 2005; Williams, 2008).
The Lubá volcanic caldera represents the only sample of monsoon forest in Equatorial Guinea. The first data on the invertebrate fauna in the interior of the Scientific Reserve of the Lubá Caldera were obtained during the Polytechnic University of Madrid scientific expeditions in the years 2005 and 2007 (Prieto y Martín, 2008; Martín y Cobos, 2010). Both expeditions corresponded to the projects of the Spanish National Plan of (I+D+i) Research+Development+Innovation, CGL2005-23762E and CGL2006 -27110-E/BOS.
Of a total of 1099 insects collected on both expeditions, 546 correspond to Lepidoptera. The first results on the Papilionidae, Pieridae and Daneidae families are shown in the present work.
